Can you offer some explanation for why your posts are so often nearly entirely incomprehensible?

Dammit, and I specifically even did a search on Yourdictionary.com to make sure "complexify" was bogus.

Grrr.

and the wheal i apear to only have popularized out side of speah, it was orriginally a spocken word.


I just can't figure this out.

I picked up my comma habit from someone else, cause you demanded punctuation so much.


I can sort of guess what this means, except the explanation - cause you demanded punctuation so much. What does this have to do with what you said before? I'm extremely confused right now.

I appear to have made the word 'wheal' popular on this site. It was orginally a spoken word.

Because of my current job, I actually find john's text incredibly easy to understand. The lack of grammar and spelling ability amongst Relay users is much worse than anything that comes from his typing. I suggest everybody at some point in the beginning of their work career get a job where they have to regularly deal with uneducated. I'm not just suggesting this cause it makes these kind of situations easier; I'm suggesting it because I'm miserable and want everybody else to suffer too >=D

you made wheal popular? really? I think not. John2 is fully credited with infecting us with that drivel.

And personally I think you have been brainwashed to believe that only the uneducated can teach you something. In fact look at that sentence really close... uneducated teacher.. that's called an oxymoron.. look it up//

(edit) i was thinking of onyxia when i typed oxymoron.. thus it came up onymoron..

I guess my intention wasn't that clear. I was translating the sentence quoted so that it could be understood better. I wasn't trying to take credit for the word.

I never said the uneducated people I work with ever taught me anything. It's not like they would say "y with dreem fun nise to park amuse go n play" and then have the decency to then tell me what they meant was "I had a dream of going and playing with you at the amusement park. It was nice and fun". Everything I learned, I had to teach myself by stretching my ability to comprehend a form of English that I would not normally be exposed to.

I wonder what 'speah' is. Or does 'out side of speah' mean 'on this site?' Therefore, 'speah' is equivalent to everything that is not 'this site.' So, if you go out of speah, you end up at this site.

Happy 5th of July.

"Speah" seems to me to be a typo for "speech."

That makes John's post much too logical: I seem to have popularized wheal outside of speech, but it was originally a spoken word.

Wheal.

Maybe a little bit, when they are watching KOBAYASI-san taking again and again the crown for most hotdog eaten in 12 minutes which always held on JULY 4...! but beside this, its a regular day for them! :p
